(AP Photo/Susan Walsh)President Trump is planning to issue executive orders this week to begin rolling back the centerpiece of President Obama's climate change agenda with several other regulations.


Trump is expected to soon issue the orders targeting regulations put into place by the Environmental Protection Agency, including the Clean Power Plan, which directs states to cut greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants.


The EPA climate plan was halted a year ago by the Supreme Court until the courts can rule on litigation by 28 state attorneys general, the coal industry and hundreds of individual companies and industry groups.


The order is expected to direct the agency to redo the climate change rule, which would be different from asking the agency to rescind the regulation altogether. Ultimately, direction on what to do about the greenhouse gas rule will have to come from the courts.

But Trump isn't planning on stopping there. The president also will issue a separate order targeting the EPA's Waters of the U.S. Rule, which greatly expanded the agency's jurisdiction over waterways to include everything from major waterways to drainage ponds on private lands. Both the Clean Power Plan and the Waters of the U.S. Rule have been long-time targets of the Republican Party.


Reports also say to expect a third Trump action to end the Department of Interior's moratorium on new coal mining leases put in place by the Obama administration.

The  '' DEMOS '' went overboard with regulations that '' HURT '' rather than " HEAL ''

Toning down some and eliminating others is the right thing to do

I trust this administration to do the right thing

That's why I voted for the Man!

I  SALUTE  YOU  SIR

I voted for Donald J. Trump for US President because he was nether Republican or Democrat IE a lying politician ! So far in the first weeks of his administration President Donald J. Trump is going about keeping his campaign promises ! Most politicians say one thing and do another ! We The People actually have someone in the White House working and not out play golf and lying to the American public about health care ! 

Right on the money

This definitely puts a smile on my face. I think Trump is the best president we have had! Thank God for raising up Trump to run for office. 

Elimination of all traces of Obama will improve our quality of life!

AMEN BROTHER

YEA!!!!!!!!

the good thing is this is just a start, what can be done now.

Restructuring EPA's role and authorities is on it's way. It's new role will be more of a reactionary facilitator of what states' environmental agencies working directly with each other agree to. Rather than the all powerful dictator it has been.

EPA's days of assuming itself to be law making branch of fed/gov are nearing an end !!

Frankmusic is that the new headquarters to the DNC?

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
